Review : "The Culture of Curating and the Curating of Culture(s)", Paul O’Neill (2012)

Pedersen, Courtney Brook (2014) Review : "The Culture of Curating and the Curating of Culture(s)", Paul O’Neill (2012). Art and the Public Sphere, 1(3). (In Press)


Paul O'Neill's book, 'The Culture of Curating and the Curating of Culture(s)provides a concise overview of how curating has changed art and how art has changed curating. The book is divided into three sections, each dealing with a key transitional development:

(1) the historical development of curatorial discourse; (2) the influence of the Biennial phenomenon and, finally, (3) how art and curating have converged since the 1990s.

This review discusses the publication as a significant contribution to the development of a curatorial history and discourse.
